We had cattle come past Buster’s gate in two groups today. They are coming by earlier in the day as we are not seeing the triple digit temperatures. The early group just did a walk thru. This was kind of a “Indian style” single file or one behind another, first time I had seen that here. The second group came latter grazing and walking
More workers in today with the winding down operations to bring the well “on line” in production.

The well is “on line” I might have failed to say that the primary product is natural gas and oil comes as a residual by product. We do have at least one oil tank truck per week and there is also a propane pickup almost on a weekly basis from the other wells on (now three wells on the site thru this gate) the ranch. There is a natural gas compressor on site and that output is delivered off site thru a pipeline system.
Cattle are coming everyday, and are very interesting to watch their routines grazing and moving on to the next area. About noon today I got a call telling me we are needed another week on the gate. That will take us up to the holiday (laborday) weekend. That works out for our doctors appointments as the doctors office is closed next week.
